Orlando Pirates midfielder Linda ‘Mthakathi’ Mlambo says they hope their newly launched Class of 95’ look-alike jersey will be a good omen for the Buccaneers for the 2019/20 season.

Pirates, together with Adidas, launched their all-white jersey with black vertical lines earlier this today at the Orlando Stadium where they hope to be hard to beat in front of the Ghosts.

Mntambo says they have collected some valuable experience in the past couple of years in the continent and they hope to go all the way this season.

The Orlando East-born and raised, Mntambo, who is competing with the likes of Xola Mlambo, Musa Nyatama and new arrivals Siphesihle Ndlovu and Fortune Makaringe for his position in the team, says he is looking forward to the competition.

Having joined Pirates last season from Chippa United, after making a name for himself at Jomo Cosmos, Mntambo admits that he did not have the best of start to his Pirates career, because of injuries.

Mntambo says players have to wait their turns at big clubs like Pirates.

The 30-year-old Mntambo adds that having been part of the team for the past season, he believes this is his break-through season on and off the field.

He adds that he is looking forward to adding his contribution to the team. Report by Thando Gqamane
